    (CNN)Rep. Justin Amash, the only congressional Republican who publicly argues that President Donald Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct, announced Thursday he is quitting the GOP.

    "Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party," Amash wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Thursday morning. "No matter your circumstance, I'm asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us. I'm asking you to believe that we can do better than this two-party system — and to work toward it. If we continue to take America for granted, we will lose it."

    Amash didn't mention the President by name, but his decision to abandon the party comes after months of escalating criticism not just of the President but of his own colleagues for their failure to hold Trump to account, specifically for the actions detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the 2016 election and its aftermath.

    Trump appeared to celebrate Amash's departure on Twitter, slamming him as a party defector who would not have been re-elected.

    "Great news for the Republican Party as one of the dumbest & most disloyal men in Congress is 'quitting' the Party," the president tweeted. "No Collusion, No Obstruction! Knew he couldn't get the nomination to run again in the Great State of Michigan. Already being challenged for his seat. A total loser!"

    The Prez is right, a total loser. He always had the look
    of a Libtard to me.

    He was obviously a democrat from the get go and couldn't contain his cloak, he was wetting himself to cause Trump trouble. Now about the rest of those rhinos, when will they be leaving.

    Then he needs to resign his seat because he was elected as a Republican.

    I hope he runs for re-election, as a democrat, and gets his ass kicked.

    His problem with Trump are the Chinese tariffs. His family owns a tool company and the tariffs are hurting their sales. That's his motivation.

    He won't run as a democrat, he's anti abortion and still a conservative. He just doesn't like Trump.

    He might keep his seat as an independent. I grew up in his district, my mom still lives in it. It's not the same district it was 32 years ago, when I moved to metro Detroit. It is a lot more racially diverse, a lot of the Dutch conservatives have moved out to the next district over (Ottawa County), and Obama carried Kent County in 2008 (by a fraction of a percentage point, but that was unthinkable when I was living there). Or he could split the vote between conservatives and a democrat could win the seat. I don't think a dem has ever held that seat, Gerald Ford was the congressman in that seat when we first moved to GR in 1969. The people in between Ford and Amash include the late Paul Henry, Hal Sawyer and Vern Ehlers, all pretty solid Rs.
